I just did battle with a blackout blind and unfortunately the blind won! Quality of this item seems good - nice & thick material although I can't vouch for its blackout capability as it was near impossible to hang. It was far larger than we needed but the Velcro allows the size to be adjusted, which is a sensible design. Unfortunately the flaw in this design seems to be the suckers - which are pretty fundamental to it being fit for purpose. First of all, the suckers are very large and unless you have one single large pane of glass in your window you will have to do battle to stick the suckers to the glass around all the framework of your window.

Dragonfly Pu'er Tea 20 Bags x 4 by Dragonfly
1.0 out of 5 stars Bleugh!, 22 May 2013
I had some Pu'er tea recently on holiday and really liked it, so sought it out on the internet when we got back. Unfortunately I had not read the above review before purchasing this particular brand - the description of it tasting like fish is very accurate! It was not at all like the tea I had on holiday - the colour was a similar deep earthy red, but it had none of the fragrance or undertone flavours I recalled, and really did taste like drinking liquid anchovies!
I haven't let it put me off though and will continue a search for a tea as enjoyable as the one I first had.

I read the first 9 Hollows books back to back - once I discovered them and started reading them, I found them so easy to read and enjoyable that I just read one after the other. So it was a fairly new experience for me to have to wait for the next installment, and perhaps that meant my anticipation - and expectation - was higher than normal. Don't get me wrong, I was by no means disappointed by this book, but for me in places it seemed to drag just a little too much. The descriptive powers of Ms Harrison when describing the Ever-After and the ley lines are second to none, but I found myself struggling to get through it all to get to the real action and storyline.
